Two of the most talented, seminal and gracefully balding musicians of their era are touring Australia next year, Live Nation has announced.
Famous friends, multiple Grammy Award winners and longtime world music fans – Sting and Paul Simon – will share the stage next year throughout the east coast stadiums of Australia – Brisbane Entertainment Centre, Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne and Qantas Credit Union Arena in Sydney – as well as some picturesque locations where wine is made (cc: old people) – Coopers Brewery in Adelaide, Hope Estate Winery in the Hunter Valley and two A Day On The Green shows at Mt Duneed Estate in Geelong and Sir James Mitchell Park in Perth.
Their tour, On Stage Together, was originally conceived after the Robin Hood Foundation benefit in 2013 where they performed on stage together for the first time…and liked it.
Tickets go in sale 10am Monday July 17.
